Our colleague Neil at Metroblogging Melbourne has done a bit of footwork and discovered that Vegemite has not been banned in the US at all. The whole uproar started when somebody tried to come over the border from Canada and had his Vegemite confiscated. The FDA confirms that there is no such ban.
So if you were worried about your ability to get Vegemite here in our nation’s capital, fear not. Vegemite can still be imported as before.
Now, why you’d actually CHOOSE to eat something so revolting is still a mystery to me, but I join my Aussie friends in celebrating their right to do so.
Thanks for clearing it up, Neil!
